Finances can be overwhelming. Understanding your account, accessing your statement, paying your bill, “Do I have a proxy?” and “What are Denison Dollars?” The list goes on. We’ve put together some frequently asked questions and answers to get you started.
Viewing Accounts and Statements
Electronic statements notifications are emailed to students and their designated proxy on the first working day of each month. Fall semester statements are available beginning July; Spring semester statements are available beginning December. Bills are due approximately three weeks after the due date.
A proxy is someone a Denison student grants access to view their account, make electronic payments and/or set up payment plans.
It’s never too late! Once you’ve set up a proxy, they have access to all prior statements.
Questions about specific charges
All full-time students enrolled at Denison University are eligible for and included in the Student Health Insurance Plan. The premium is charged only once per year during the first semester of full-time enrollment for the academic year. Students enrolled in other insurance plans must waive coverage by the published deadline. Students who have not waived their coverage will be automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan.
For more information, visit the USI Student Insurance website. To utilize, please click the “Students” button in the top right corner and then the “Get Started” button to locate the Denison University page.
The annual tuition permits a student to take a maximum of 18 hours each semester. An additional excess hour charge is made for each registered hour above the maximum.
A part-time student (8 hours or fewer per semester) is charged the hourly rate for each semester hour of credit.
